Welcome!  Zoey is adorable and I have to agree, I don't know how you could ever say "no" to her.   :)

BTW, I'm the proud mom of 1 Golden Retriever mix, 2 Pyrs and 3 human kids and I just started posting, too.  I think that you'll love it here and you'll love the pics of puppy "Lucian"!!  ;)

Hi I have a rott/dogue de bordeaux (yes aka french mastiff) and here she is!

She is named after Peyton Manning (we live in Indianapolis and my boyfriend LOVES the Colts. We picked the name because she is gonna be tall, lean, muscular too though and she is gonna have a big head! (size not ego!) And most of all...she is quite vocal. She uses her voice for everything! If she isn't talking...she must be into something!

Your house isn't a home until you have made a bed for a dog.

I also have a DDB. His name is Steiger. He is actually five moths old today! Being a former Rottie owner turned full time mom (my last rottie passed when Lily was less than a year) I wanted to dog similar to my Rotties but just a touch more laid back. Our drooling ottoman (Steiger) is the perfect fit. lol. All that hard headed oneriness I love without the high excercise requirements. We are also home to a tiny 9lb Boston Terrier "Kuzi" and a Frenchie named "Bill". I worked as a professional dog trainer for years when I lived in VA. I have to say that the DDB is the easiest Mastiff breed I have come in contact with to train. Followed very closely by the Boerbel. Possibly even a tie....Anyway, I love my boy. As soon as I figure out this picture thing I will show off our baby boy. Thank you for letting me post!

This is Harley!  He's 1 yr old and what a joker.  He is from Kittimer's Zeal and Kittimer's Love from Ohio.  He's only @ 110 right now, but he's still has a little growing to do.  He's our first Dogue and we would definitely get another.  We also have a Choc. Lab and a Lhasa Apso.  They all get along great.  Can't get anyone to play with Harley though.  He's gets too rough.  We've noticed this week that his back ankles are a bit unstable.  He has no pain or lameness. Maybe just a little stiffness.  They "pop" out to the side when he walks.   We took him to our vet and he felt that it was part of his development.  We don't want to take any chances that may cause long term damage or problems. How can we be sure?  Any suggestions?  We'd really appreciate any info we can get. 
Thanks!

He's a great looking dog (douge) :D  HE will not mature fully for another 6-10 months so the popping joints is not uncommon.  There was just a thread about that very topic withan English Mastiff not too far back.

Steiger turned one year in December. He is currently 145lbs. Still just as crazy about him and his breed as ever. I just took new pics. I will try and post them in a bit.

hello I have a Dogue De Bordeaux! he is about 10 months old now and I have had Rotti's all my life. And when my last one was putdown due to lymphoma I had to decide what kind of dog I wanted. When I was ready I decided on a Dogue! Boy am I happy he is so funny. I dont see many of them in my area. I am a vet tech and there is only 1 that comes to our office. I would love to chat with you about my funny guy
